Vail Daily letter: Donovan for state Senate

Ditto on every reason Greg Moffet so articulately stated as to why Eagle County residents, Republicans, Democrats and independents, need to align and elect one of our own, Kerry Donovan, to represent us in the Colorado state Senate. Our recreation-based economy, smack in the middle of the state on I-70, needs someone with first-hand knowledge and experience to represent us on matters that affect our lifestyle and livelihoods.

As a four-year member of the Vail Town Council serving with Kerry, I know firsthand how hard she worked to become familiar with a diverse set of issues. From the relationship between the resort and the town, or taking a serious look at our building codes, Kerry was a pragmatic vote that was always an informed one, including mastering the nuances of spending and saving decisions for town of Vail’s $54 million annual budget during a tumultuous time.

Like many of you, I’ve seen the slanderous campaign ads that totally misrepresent Kerry. As a former colleague, I can tell you that Kerry’s work helped bolster our tourism economy and she always sought to protect the people from any idea that put them in the backseat. I’m voting for Kerry because I believe in her ability to bring both sides of the table and because she won’t play politics with our economy. Today, vote for Kerry and get your ballot in the mail. Or, if you want to save a stamp, you can drop it off at the Eagle County offices or town of Vail offices Friday through Tuesday!
